The Polish Football Association (PZPN) has chosen STATSCORE as the official data provider of the country’s top-flight Women’s Ekstraliga and men’s third division 2. Liga.
As a result of the agreement, LeagueCentre platforms will be incorporated into the official webpages of the leagues within the Łączy nas piłka website, whilst TeamCentres will be integrated into the websites of specific clubs.
“We know how important the analysis and statistics are nowadays, and how well they attract the attention of football fans,” said Pawl Guminak, Chairman of the 2. Liga.
“We can say that they have become a crucial, or even indispensable, feature of this sport.
We are also happy to keep improving the quality of the league by establishing such a collaboration.”
STATSCORE and both the Women’s Elkstagliga and Men’s 2. Liga stated that the cooperation will allow the PZPN to provide coverage of the competitions in ‘better and more efficient ways’.
“We warmly welcome the Women’s Ekstraliga and the 2. Liga of football among STATSCORE’s partners!” added Tomasz Myalski, CEO of STATSCORE. “It’s thanks to you that we’re able to build the biggest sports data center in the world.
“As a company that strategically supports Polish sports, we’re happy to be able to support the development and promotion of two more leagues operating in our country.
“Fans of 2. Liga and Ekstraliga will surely appreciate the advanced statistics and exceptional live coverage of the games of their favorite teams.”
The deals are an expansion of STATSCORE’s partnership with the PZPN, agreed upon in 2020, which has seen the company serve as the primary data provider of the men’s second-tier 1. Liga.
In August last year, the firm was selected as the naming rights sponsor of the Futsal Ekstaklasa, and as a result, was integrated into the league’s new logo, gaining significant advertising exposure.
This was followed by an agreement with sportsbook Altenar in October, which saw the two join forces to create ‘high-quality’ LivematchPro widgets.
Radosław Firlej, Business Development Manager at STATSCORE, also commented: “The cooperation of STATSCORE and the Polish Football Association is a good example of reaching our goals in relation to sports organisations.
“We are glad that new competition organisers recognise the vast and unique opportunities of development that our company offers to sports tournaments as their Official Data Provider.”
The data provider was named one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Central Europe in 2018, and also maintains partnerships with media outlets Le Figaro and Onet, and bookmakers Ladbrokes and Eurobet.
